Ex-Phillie Dykstra discounts his stock-options business

"Nails" Dykstra is back promoting stock options

Ex-Phillie Dykstra discounts his stock-options business

Lenny Dykstra, the ex-Phillie and Met who lost his Malibu mansion, pawned his World Series ring and declared bankruptcy after his business career went south earlier this year, is back promoting stock options after a couple months off. His Nails Investments Website here.

Dykstra's investor critics say his claim of a 100% success rate is unrealistic because it relies on treating options contracts as if they never expire. But Dykstra's still making the claim, and charging $1000/year for his options tips. But now he appears to have added a cheaper membership,  $125/month for short-term users. A recessionary discount?
